I've been lurking around the site for some time on and off and decided to join today because I'm ready to make some changes. I'm not sure where to post this but since I'm over 35 I figured this is about the best place. First a few stats about me. I'm 41 year old man. I'm married and have four kids. I work nights driving a truck that sometimes requires me to work the dock when I get to a destination or sometimes I just drive(kinda depends on the route they give me). I also have Lukemia I was diagnosed about 10 years ago but I'm doing just fine so no worries there.
Here's my deal. Back when I was diagnosed I never exercised. When my doctor got me into remission he suggested I lose weight. So I got fired up I had a new lease on life. I lost around 60 pounds or so and got down to 200 pounds and 13% bodyfat,but back then they had ephdrine. I maintained that weight for about a year and then it started coming back. Back when I lost the weight I was ligting weights 5 days a week mixed with cardio and running 3 miles every Sunday. I enjoy lifting weights more than cardio,ecspecially now since my weight had pretty much came back. I have more muscle now and can lift more than I could 10 years ago,but I also have a belly. So what I want to do is keep what muscle I have and lose this bodyfat. I don't know if they Lukemia keeps me from putting on a lot of muscle. I should be bigger than I am. I do well in deadlift and in legs,but not so well in chest in shoulders. The past month and half I've been doing a workout that starts with three reps of your heaviset set like deadlift for exmaple. Since I know I need to change I'm looking for a new workout and diet to achieve my goals. I want to get back down to 200 pounds and less than 13% bodyfat. Can y'all help me out??????
